Yikes, that is a truly nightmarish second set list.

Samson & Delilah, Way To Go Home, Crazy Fingers-> Corrina-> Drums-> Space-> All Along The Watchtower-> Black Peter-> Around & Around (84 mins.), E: Box Of Rain

I'm genuinely curious about what the heck the band may have been thinking with set lists like that.

Or this:

10/7/94, Set 2 Victim Or The Crime-> Samba In The Rain, Foolish Heart-> Corinna-> Drums-> Space-> The Last Time-> That Would Be Something-> Morning Dew, E: Johnny B. Goode

These late set lists almost read like a commentary. "Way to go home? Oh, not quite, I guess ... but soon. Very soon." "Is this the last time? Well, that would be something."

Were they just incredibly out of touch with the audience, or was the audience actually enthusiastic about this stuff? (I was out of touch by then and didn't see shows post-92, so I have no sense of it myself.)

Here's another head scratching what were they thinking setlist that I saw in Shoreline... just get a load of that smokin' second set!!!

05-22-93 Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, Ca. (Sat)
1: Half Step, Rooster, B. E. Women, Broken Arrow, Supplication, Stagger Lee, Promised
2: Foolish Heart, Woman Smarter, Ship Of Fools, Corinna> Drumz> Last Time> Stella Blue> Saturday Night E: IFTL
final/last "Supplication": 10-31-84 [597]

Actually the concert is stronger than what it is on paper. Half Step is worth a listen. And the Supplication breakout brought big cheshire smiles to our faces.

My last show was Highgate, VT summer of 1994. Had an amazing time, they pulled out a decent set list that included a New Speedway I'd always wanted to hear, but performance wise the show was a typical dud for those final years.

AltheaRose, I just realized I'm close to your timezone. I'm running a sales conference in Hong Kong this week. Considering Chengdu next year. Ever been up there? Somewhat your neck of the woods but a ways away. We host the PacRim meeetings in China cause it's easier for everyone to get into China than the Chinese to get out. Wish we could go to Nepal, but I'm not sure we have any customers there, I haven't noticed Nepal for being known for technology

Whatever you sell, I'm sure we get the cheap Chinese copies of your stuff here. And Nepal is pretty good at technology; when those cheap copies break, they can keep them running forever here! It would probably be pretty decent at technology and a big outsourcing place if there was 24/7 electricity. Heck, even 20/7.

Never been to China; Seoul and Bangkok, but not China. Lots of Chinese tourists here these days, though. They come down the street in lines, with some guy leading them with little flags. Very different than the US/Euro/Israeli backpackers. Not many Chinese have dreads.

"Not many Chinese have dreads." Too funny. Yeah, the backpackers are a different sort, in a good way. I was in Krakow, Poland a couple weeks ago and saw a group leader walking down the street with a flag and all the tourists following behind like ducklings, each wearing the same shirt.

Quite a difference going from a bone dry -1 Celsius to a humid 27 degrees.

I believe their thinking was the same as it always was. They played what they felt like playing. There were other periods in their history where setlists were filled with alot of newer tunes. Especially early on. i think those instances were more readily accepted because the songs were good songs. In the 90s, all the new songs, excepting maybe one or two, were crap songs.

just one man's opinion of course!!
